Extraterrestrial Boys & Girls is still alive and that's awesome and this is why:

YES, I already feared the project died a silent death like Despera, but it's alive and kicking!! I simply ADORE Dennou Coil, a wonderfully realized Sci-Fi clash between Serial Experiments Lain and a Ghibli feature. While it slightly stumbles in the second half, it is nevertheless one of my favorite shows by far, and remains sadly very overlooked to this day. The sheer idea of having AR blew my mind in 2008. I was like "this is possible?!?!"... and now we're nearing the year of 2027 and we might really see a world similar depicted to in Dennou Coil. The sheer animation prowess in this show is immense and the level of competence in execution throughout is rarely seen in Anime, but, while undoubtedly very well done, I was never *that* fond of the character design. So I'm simply overjoyed to see none other than Kenichi Yoshida of Eureka Seven fame helming this show's character design *OMGEMOJI* He's one of my favorite designers around.

Now, are my expectations irresponsibly high and will likely be heavily disappointed? Sure! But that's still far off in the future :)

(In the meantime, everybody, go watch Dennou Coil)

Personally, I am glad that Tomino still has the willpower and resilience to work on these new projects. I look forward to hearing more about them in due time:

Apparently Gunbuster inspired one of the folks who worked on Hayabusa2

Pretty cool I think! Anno always changing people's lives :gendo_yay:
I used to work in a factory and I was really happy because I could daydream all day -- I.C.
And thanks to EVA, I've started like myself and that has made me very happy. Mr. Anno, please keep working on EVA a lot more.
and thank you so much for everything!!
